Located just beside Farrow & Ball, this is another excellent paint shop that also stocks Farrow & Ball. Staff are friendly and full of helpful advice - a bit more of a painters paint shop than its closest neighbours!

Great takeaway sandwiches can be found here at lunch but you've got to get there early to bag yourself the Chicken Milanese. They've also improved the selection of takeaway pasta on offer at lunchtime too.

Nice shop with helpful staff, Farrow & Ball is great paint but it is pricey... the only other downside is trying to park near this shop and having to try and carry the paint to the car from it.

Pastries, breads, cakes... and a coffee machine - this place knows how to make dough!

As the name suggests, you feel like you're in Berlin when you grab a coffee here - I'm not sure if it was the decor or the heavy industrial german techno playing lightly in the background that gave this impression. The coffee was good and there's plenty of outside seating should the background music prove too much!

Keywords: coffee, funky

They've recently expanded the shop so it's more like a proper cafe now - good move as it's much more inviting now.

This is a great little spot, like something you'd find down west - a pint and a box of cornflakes please!

I got my car serviced here with an RMA voucher a few months back, no issues for me with Mechanic on Duty - dropped the car in and it was ready for me later that day.

First weekend open and this place is jammers - great atmosphere and of course decent wine - a nice change from my usual pint of Guinness down the road!

Funky café serving decent coffee and breakfast/lunchtime grub, the bagels are tasty and the vegetable soup is excellent. There's also a small seating area outside.

Another chain but better coffee than some of the other chains... perhaps it is more about the coffee than the "coffee experience" - not naming names!

Fantastic new pub, great to see a pub open on super pub row with a more traditional decor and feel. I can't wait to try the food menu which is served upstairs and seems to be mainly traditional Irish fayre.

Another decent lunch spot for Merrion Row. While a little less sophisticated than the gastronomical experience that is Etto up the road, KC Peaches offers an affordable and healthy lunch option with a decent amount of seating for those busier times.

Decent, well stocked pharmacy with friendly staff, would be 5 stars if they extended their opening hours.
